The Olmsted Professorships have been created to inspire future generations of transformational civil and environmental engineers with the concepts pioneered and developed by the legendary landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted. Generally regarded as the father of American landscape architecture, Olmsted integrated civil and environmental engineering, community building, and natural systems to create treasured examples of multi-purpose park systems and infrastructure in 24 states and the District of Columbia. His work includes Central Park and Ocean Parkway in New York City, the Emerald Necklace in Boston, the Riverside Community in Illinois, and the Druid Hills community in Atlanta.
The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering has vibrant programs in Construction Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Environmental Fluid Mechanics and Water Resources, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering/Mechanics/Materials, and Transportation Engineering. In both civil engineering and environmental engineering, the School’s undergraduate and graduate programs are consistently ranked among the top programs in the Country. The School currently has approximately 700 undergraduate and 400 graduate students, and 55 full time, tenure track faculty members.
The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering is situated at the heart of the Georgia Institute of Technology campus, in Midtown Atlanta, and benefits from its association with a vibrant, global metropolis.
